“It’s another way of finding a way to spend money without the people’s permission,” Campbell said.

Selectmen also discussed the possibility of reconstructing South Shore Road in the immediate future even though the work is not scheduled to be done for several years. Some residents of the road, including George Abraham, have asked that the work be made a top priority.

Along with the work approved Monday, the town is scheduled to spend more than $4.6 million on road improvements this year. That includes work on Pond Street and Stiles Road.

In other business, selectmen accepted $83,035 in state and federal reimbursement money for costs incurred for the Bluff Street bridge project.
